Media moguls by Jeremy Tunstall( )

24 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emergence of a few powerful individuals in control of large sections of mass-communicationsidustries has coincided with world-wide media de-regulation. But what characterizes the media mogul'? And in what political and economic conditions do they flourish? In a series of case studies, the book considers west European television and the transatlantic trade of Hollywood programming: the data market and the global hegemony of international news agencies; and the industrial lobbying of EC media policy-makers. Jeremy Tunstall and Michael Palmer examine the media moguls personal eccentricities, personal partizanship and industrial alliances to ask how they have shaped national and global communications. As the moguls' influence spread, the book asks how societies and cultures are changed, and whether local representations will continue to be produced in the face of the commercial dominance of the mogul's media product? The authors' accounts of the struggle for control of the mass communications, where international technology confronts national politics, should prove essential reading for scholars and practitioners alike
Television producers by Jeremy Tunstall( )

19 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From live sports coverage to light entertainment, British television is producer-driven. Television Producers presents a comprehensive survey of the entire spectrum of television broadcasting, conveying a vivid sense of the particular atmosphere of seven different programming areas - documentaries, news, sport, infotainment', drama, comedy and game shows. Jeremy Tunstall's focus is on the main concerns of the producers, including money, the type of performers available, the facts of studio, location and film, and the kinds of expectations which each particular is expected to fulfil. He argues that these constraints and opportunities attract and continue to influence different kinds of people, so that documentary producers see themselves as artist-filmmakers, while news or game-show producers perceive their roles very differently. Each batch of producers are walled off into a separate, private world with its own guiding assumptions, paradoxes, eccentricities and fears, and it is these worlds which Tunstall illuminates.; Television Producers provides an in-depth look at the work of individual producers including the TopPeople' in British broadcasting - producers of leading programmes and the network barons. Over two hundred and fifty producers across the range of British television - BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and the independents - were interviewed for the book, along with the Hollywood executive producers of Dallas, Kojak, Mash and CHIPS

26 editions published between 1983 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British newspapers -- The Times, The Guardian, Daily Telegraph, and Financial Times -- have long been considered among the best in the world, and the BBC has become the world's most venerated television and radio organization. In this book Jeremy Tunstall surveys British media since 1945, including television, radio, films, newspapers, and magazines, with the purpose of studying how they operate and what the future holds for them. In the course of the book he discusses such issues as the relationship of politics to the media, media audiences, media biases, control of the media by conglomerates, and policies for the future

The Open University opens by Jeremy Tunstall( Book )

18 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conceived by the British Labor Government in the 1960's the Open University was viewed as a way to extend higher education to Britain's working class, but enrollment figures in classes that represent traditional academic disciplines show that the student population is predominantly middle class. Bringing education into the home presents numerous pedagogical problems; among them are: (1) translating lectures into self-explanatory, auto-instructional packages that can be delivered through the mail; (2) coordinating the instructional presentation to coincide with the availability of public broadcast time: (3) the design and publication of reading materials, experimentation kits, and exams; and (4) the organization of regional tutorial offices. The resulting individualized approach is impressively economical compared with the cost of the traditional university. (Emh)

Newspaper power : the new national press in Britain by Jeremy Tunstall( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author argues that it is the newspapers (not television) which define political crises and severely wound Prime Ministers; that the broadsheets have increasingly regarded finance as the new core of serious journalism; and that the tabloids have re-defined the British monarchy as soap opera. He also analyzes the control over policy-making for the press, broadcasting, and cross-media ownership, which is exercised by the Prime Minister in consultation with the press. The book provides a valuable introduction to the national Press of our time and the issues that surround current and recent British journalism

The media were American : U.S. mass media in decline by Jeremy Tunstall( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1977, Jeremy Tunstall published the landmark The Media Are American. In it, he argued that while much of the mass media originated in Europe and elsewhere, the United States dominated global media because nearly every mass medium became industrialized within the United States. With this provocative follow-up, Tunstall chronicles the massive changes that have taken place in the media over the past forty years--changes that have significantly altered the "balance of power" within the global media landscape. The Media Were American demonstrates that both the United States and its mass media have lost their previous moral leadership. Instead of sole American control of the world news flow, we now see a world media structure comprised of interlocking national, regional, and cultural systems. From a relentlessly global point of view, Tunstall looks closely at China and India--and at their rapidly burgeoning populations--and also at the rise of the mass media in the Muslim world. He considers the role of the media in the collapse of the Soviet Union, the ascendance of the Brazilian and Mexican soap opera, the increasing strength of "Bollywood"--The national cinema output of India--and the relative decline in influence of U.S. media. Reconsidering the very notion of "global media," the book posits a reemergence of stronger national cultures and national media systems."

The Anglo-American media connection by Jeremy Tunstall( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Anglo-American media constitutes one of the world's most familiar, and least analysed, alliances. For the United States media, this close-connection with Britain is one of several unambiguous American international media trading advantages. For Britain the relationship is more ambiguous: in news and factual media Britain can realistically see itself as the world media number two, but across the broad range of entertainment Britain is closer to being a colonial dependency of Hollywood. All other European countries are also both media nationalists and Hollywood dependents." "Spanning a broad range from advertising to publishing, pop music and pornography, this book also addresses the media future: does the merger of American TV networks with Hollywood companies constitute a new 'Hollyweb' cartel which excludes European companies? Can the BBC survive until 2022? Can televised sport help to create a European identity?"--Jacket
Media occupations and professions : a reader by Jeremy Tunstall( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Media Occupations and Professions have expanded dramatically in recent decades, and have become central to social change around the world. This collection sees media occupations in terms of a steep hierarchy. At the top are three categories of individuals: own-and-operate moguls, managing barons, and performing stars. At the middle and lower levels many groupings try to pursue professionalizing and craft strategies. This book's main focus is on journalism, television, and Hollywood. While American and British pieces predominate, there are also selections which cover Africa, Australia, China, France, Germany, India, Ireland, and Russia."--Jacket
